NEW Presenting Problem: "Red Leg" in Frogs

red leg by harkewicz

Red leg syndrome, also known as "pink belly disease" or bacterial dermatosepticemia, is one of the most common clinical conditions of captive frogs. Associated with peracute to acute bacterial septicemia, red leg is generally a disease of captive animals although the condition has also been implicated in rare mass mortalities of wild amphibians.

See the new Presenting Problem article Red Leg in Frogs*, contributed by Dr. Kenneth well as the supplemental table Fast Facts on Chytrid Fungus.
